Rare Chinese Song / Yuan Dynasty Moulded Qingbai Porcelain Bowl
This rare and interesting porcelain bowl was made in the 12th – 14th century during the Southern Song (AD 1127 – 1279) or the Yuan Dynasty (AD 1279 – 1368), a product of one of the Dehua kilns in Fujian province. The outer wall is decorated with two bands of moulded lotus petals. It is coated with a very finely-crackled creamy-white Qingbai glaze. The mouth-rim remains unglazed as does the flat base, revealing the chalky-white body.
It is quite a large bowl with a diameter of 15.5 cm (6 inches), height 7.5 cm (3 inches). To parts of the outer wall the glaze is thin and has degraded. There is a short hairline to the rim, barely visible on the outside, that follows the crackle of the glaze on the inner surface. There is no repair or restoration. .
